Caladon Falls: The Travelogue of Tavish Thorne

I don't ordinarily have much use for rpg-based fiction, but this was cool. Jason Engle's art is terrific.

A Magical Medieval Society: City Guide
Publisher: Expeditious Retreat Press
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/10/2012 13:33:38
This series has been highly praised, not because it's the best it can be, but because it's the only one of its kind. For me, it seemed like a well-researched guide to a medieval city, with the word "magical" tacked on. There are craft guilds, thieve's guilds... and a wizard's guild. There are pubs, armorers...and alchemist's shops. Otherwise the society is unchanged.

This is fine for a class-based d20 game where wizardry is confined to a few character types. But what if you have a more open skills-based system? What's the effect of having lots of people knowing a little magic? Really thinking it through, how would magic change a society?

In all though a good introduction to the subject. Can't imagine why they aren't charging for it.

Hovel
Publisher: Fantasy Cutouts
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/16/2011 13:09:48
The models of FantasyCutouts.com are in a league of their own. Most paper models, especially buildings, have a flat, architectural quality--they get the job done, but sometimes lack character. The Hovel is exceptional because Leo Hartas is such a good illustrator. His surfaces have great texture: you can actually see the difference between flagstone and cobblestone, or between wooden beams and the more weathered wood of a door. And there are dozens of little details, like laundry hanging on a line, a barrel being used as a nightstand, farming tools leaning in a corner. Construction is pretty simple (not all FantasyCutoffs.com models are) and the model has a nice dimensionality when completed. Just a terrific model that will add atmosphere to your RPG play. Highly recommended.
